The Sexy Zone boy band was making advertising for the debut single all over Tokyo when we were visiting (it was released when we were there).

The orange Eiffel Tower look-a-like is, of course, Tokyo Tower.

The great library (there are two more rooms and a corridor, and storerooms (plural) with books too) at the Swedish Institute in Rome. If you are there as a researcher you get assigned your own desk for the whole stay (mine is the one in the front row, to the left).

The institute is called Istituto Svedese di studi classici a Roma in Italian - which sums it up very well. It is for academic studies in art, history and archaeology of Antiquity, with both a well filled library and work space for archaeologists - and rooms available for for those there doing research. I was staying there both to do my own work and working as a secretary for my father-in-law for a few weeks.

A) Roman penannular brooch. Made of copper alloy with red enamel decoration depicting fish and birds. This type of brooch is believed to come from Ireland in the third and fourth century A.D. Found at the excavation of the sacred spring in1979.

B) Celtic bow brooch of the so-called 'Colchester B' type, dating to 50-70 A.D. It is made of copper alloy. Found at the excavation of the sacred spring in 1979.

C) Celtic bow brooch made of copper alloy. It is a so-called 'Nauheim derivative', a British version of a common type of brooch on the continent. It dates to the early to the middle of the first century A.D. Found at the excavation of the sacred spring in 1980.

D) Roman ear ring with twisted silver and bronze. Found at the excavation of the sacred spring in 1980.

E) Roman rings of copper alloy. Found at the excavations of the sacred spring in 1979-80.

(I haven't been able to find any additional information on the other ear ring.)

The waters at Bath were very popular already in Roman times, and they in their turn took after the Celts who had built a shrine dedicated to the goddess Sulis. The Romans built both temples and baths and called the town Aquae Sulis (the water of Sulis).

According to the Anglo-Saxon chronicle the baths were destroyed in the 6th century. But not totally - the spring continued to draw attention to its healing powers, and it is now housed in a 18th century building, one of the central features of Bath. And extensive archaeological research to the Roman remains has also been made.

Sword beach at Colleville-Montgomery - where troops landed on June 6 1944. Today it is mainly used for bathing (though the water may be quite cold in the beginning in June...).
